BREAKING: Austin Aries' Impact Wrestling Fate Revealed Following 'Bound For Glory' Controversy

The 2018 Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory PPV did not end without controversy, as fans were left questioning the final moments of the show when former Champion Austin Aries no-sold Johnny Impact’s finishing move and stormed out of the event, flipping the bird to the fans in New York City in the process.
Following the PPV, the question of whether or not Aries’ post-main event antics were a work lingered, and we still do not quite know if Aries went into business for himself. The entire feud between Aries and Johnny Impact, leading up to Bound For Glory, has blurred the lines between reality and fiction, so we might never know if Aries’ actions at the PPV were scripted or not.

What we do know, however, is that Austin Aries is said to be finished with Impact Wrestling following the PPV on Sunday.

According to Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live, Austin Aries returned home after Sunday’s PPV and will not be present for the Impact Wrestling TV tapings taking place tonight and tomorrow night in New York City. Furthermore, Impact star Petey Williams noted via The Wrestling Perspective podcast that Aries’ final match on his previous Impact Wrestling contract was Sunday’s Bound For Glory title bout, meaning he finished up with the company contractually following the PPV.

Because Aries’ contract was up after Sunday, it appears as if Aries was not fired by management following Bound For Glory, so it is very much still possible Aries’ actions on Sunday were part of the script, and he could return to Impact at the next set of TV tapings, assuming he signs a new deal.
It’s worth noting that WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray explained on today’s episode of Busted Open Radio that Austin Aries is happiest when he is getting what he wants. Ray furthered that it is entirely possible Aries was unhappy with creative plans Impact Wrestling had for him, and if that was the case, then that could explain his actions at Bound For Glory if he indeed did go into business for himself.

Former WWE Star Makes Surprise Appearance At Impact Wrestling 'Bound For Glory'

The 2018 Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory PPV is taking place at The Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York, tonight, and during the big event Eli Drake issued an open challenge for anyone in the Impact locker room to face him in a singles match.
Drake had been hyping the open challenge all week heading into tonight’s PPV, and while speculation has been running wild as to who would be the name to answer Drake’s challenge, I don’t think anyone was expecting the name that actually showed up.
To the surprise, and apparent dismay of the fans in Queens, former WWE star James Ellsworth hit the ring and answered Eli Drake’s challenge. Before the bout, Ellsworth cut a brief promo on the mic, even dropping subtle reference to WWE star Carmella, without actually mentioning her name.

Eli Drake made quick work Ellsworth, dispatching the former WWE star via pinfall. After the match, Drake grabbed the microphone and demanded “real competition” at Bound For Glory. Drake’s demand was answered by the 2018 Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee Abyss.

On a related noted, Eli Drake was amongst the names in attendance for the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame ceremony in Manhattan on Saturday night, and appeared on camera during the ceremony’s broadcast on Twitch.
As for James Ellsworth, tonight is not the first time the “Chinless” superstar has appeared for Impact Wrestling, as he previously appeared for the company at a One Night Only PPV event special on Twitch, in between his most recent stints with WWE acting as Carmella’s sidekick. Ellsworth last appeared for WWE over the summer, briefly appearing on TV after making his return at this year’s Money in the Bank PPV.
